    Anyone ever try to replace their formica lanes with real bowling lanes? Just saw these old lanes for sale online.

    Just getting into these. About to start a restoration thread on my "barn find", but was also wondering about this Chicago Coin model. No name I can see. Owner says 1960, but maybe it is 1960's?

    This isn't the actual machine.

    Any info appreciated.

    The one pictured seems to be a Chicago Coin "Fleetwood"

    Fleetwood is a great game - congrats!

    1967

    1967

    That's not the one I picked up. But I may be able to, so just doing my homework.

    I grabbed a United Bowling Alley, non working is being kind.

    I'm trying to gauge a fair price for the Fleetwood. Or better yet, a good deal price.

    #57 1 year ago

    That's my Fleetwood that's in the local VFW. The original backglass's basic color is purplish, but I had
    one made the blue. Fleetwood is one of the last (maybe thee last) Chicago Coin Big Ball Bowlers with
    the larger score reels which I much rather have. In 1968, they went with the smaller and cheaper score reels.
    Back in the 90s, the Guy's Mom wanted it out of her garage, and I got a good deal picking it up for $275.00
    Of course it didn't look anything like it does in the picture. Other projects ones I picked up for $500.00 (in the 90s).
    What's the title of the one you have a chance to get?

    That's what I was trying to find out. No model name or specific year. Owner said 1960, but I was having a hard time nailing it down.

    The game looks well used, but I'm ok with that if the price is right.

    I haven't heard back from the owner yet, so we'll see.

    Any suggestions on a nice low starting offer for a working model?

    The Beatles has landed at the VFW.
    So has Bell Games "Fantasy".

    Hello All!

    Looking to find out what this 1961 United Dixie Bowling Alley is worth as is. It lights up, Pins retract when bars are pushed, changes players with button. The balls were returning but, now stopped. It's dirty but, would clean up nice. I need to move it as house its in sold.

    If you can go through it yourself and it's primarily complete, an easy $1,000.00, but I'm thinking you
    can get it for much less. If the ball lift stopped, I'm sure it's okay, but you don't want to run in any longer
    until it's gone through. It's a big ball bowler. Can't go wrong. Good luck..

    mopar I actually own it and am looking to sell it. I'd love to fix it but, not sure I have the time now. The house it's in sold and I have to move it. Never got the time to mess with it unfortunately.

    I already have more pins and ball bowlers than money.
    I'd be taking offers, but you'd probably be asked to take additional pics.
    I'd offer you couple pins for it if that helped, but I'm in Upstate N.Y.
    We'd have to meet 1/2 way.
    Taking offers first is an option..
